Bogor (Indonesia), May 26, 2017
In 2016, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) made great strides to put forests and people on the global development agenda. As the world gears up for action on climate change and sustainable development, CIFOR research showed how putting landscapes, forests and people at the fore can make a positive difference for the environment and communities.
A new ten-year strategy launched in 2016 defines CIFOR’s vision going forward. 2016 was also an outstanding year for research, resource mobilization, capacity development, and outreach and engagement.
“Throughout 2016, renewed funding commitments to the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA), the Global Comparative Study on REDD+ and other key projects fueled our ambition to elevate the ways forestry can contribute to greater and more equitable livelihoods, economic services and rural prosperity for all – especially the world’s poor and marginalized,” said the Director General of CIFOR, Peter Holmgren.
